  • Description

    Bomb explosions, pistol shots and the crackling of fires shattered the uneasy calm which today briefly descended on this riot-torn city now is its seventh day of violence. Four Policemen were forced to seek asylum in private houses tonight (13 Oct) as demonstrators move in to lynch them and then only dispersed their aggressors by firing their service pistols in the air.

    The town hall was set on fire but although flames licked up ground flor windows and the front door, firemen were able to put out the blaze before it got out of hand.
